In order to prevent malnutrition among children from 0 to 23 months and women of childbearing age, CARE International Benin/Togo has initiated an integrated nutrition program called “Nutrition at the Center”. This program is the starting point for the implementation of the P4P project which has just completed its third phase. The main goal of P4P III is to help reduce stunting and anemia in children under 2 years of age, and anemia in women of childbearing age, by increasing availability and equitable access foods of animal and vegetable origin with high nutritional value. The present study aims to assess the results of P4P II in the communes of Adjohoun and Dangbo and of P4P III in the 4 beneficiary communes: Adjohoun, Dangbo, Covè and Djakotomey. Information was collected from 475 mother-child couples aged 6 to 23 months using individual interviews and questionnaires, and from 114 P4P beneficiary groups using an interview guide.
